Any reason they are not using Exchange?  It can be difficult to backup mail without it.  You should be able to remove it, but SBS WANTS to be setup a certain way and may add it back on its own.  If that happens, you'll need to at least use the information from this link to change the transport order permanently so that even though Exchange may be there, it does nothing.

You actually can't fully uninstall Exchange from SBS because then you would be unable to upgrade with Service Packs.  Also, if they are using POP3 email, why not have Exchange handle it with the POP3 connector?  This way email can be checked with your Server's Virus Protection and will be backed up locally as well.

Also, do they send email to eachother?  Because those don't go through POP3 normally unless you use the hack from the link above.  

I don't quite understand why folks wouldn't keep it going.

Note: I'm not saying you should uninstall exchange, just remove the transport from Outlook.
